"Never have I spent a year with more Interest than 1840 never have I been called to make greater sacrifices or enjoyed greater Blessings. I have been called to make a sacrafize of the society of my wife & children not once beholding their faces, one of which is taken from time, (Sarah Emma is gone to be seen no more in this life) The whole year has been spent in a foreign nation combating error with everlasting truth, meeting with many contradictions of sinners who oppose themselves against the the Truth, Being stoned mobed & opposed, Yet the Lord hath blessed me with a great harvest of souls as seals of my ministry, many hundreds have received the word with joy & gladness & are now rejoicing in the new & Everlasting Covenant . . .
